Efforts to increase efficient nutrient use by crops are of growing importance as the global demand for food, fibre and fuel increases and competition for resources intensifies. This book provides both a timely summary of the latest advances in the field as well as anticipating directions for future research. It bridges the gap between agronomic practice and molecular biology by linking underpinning molecular mechanisms to the physiological and agronomic aspects of crop yield. Written by leading international researchers, this is an essential resource for the crop science community for years to come.
There are then a series of excellent individual chapters on phosphorus, the cationic macronutrients potassium, calcium and magnesium, sulphur, iron, zinc and the micronutrients boron, chlorine, copper, manganese, molybdenum and nickel.
